Web API provides support for REST based services which can be used in conjunction with web applications to improve performance of web applications. The JBI approach is to first introduce the basics of the Model, View and Controller approach before moving on to the many features which allow enhancing of this architecture. This course focuses on MVC 5, whilst another course focuses on MVC 6 with integrated Web API approach and its new features using Visual Studio 2015.
The labs lead the developer through the development of an MVC application progressively using features to enhance this application for performance and responsive user interface. Labs to illustrate the ability to create single page applications will make use of Web API.
This course also takes a tour of the some of the new features introduced with MVC 6.
